    You just made me terrified for what my real exams are gonna achieve next year.

    Thanks, achieving a B for me would be like hitting the jackpot.


    EDIT: I would help if I could, but I can't, so I wont. Good luck anyway!

    Good luck with your results. Have you looked into law based subjects?

    If you don't get three As whatever you do, don't jump onto the first thing that comes along. Take some time out. Get a job for a bit. There seems to be a mass rush and clamour to go to university, but in reality there is no rush. You can still go next year, or the year after that or 5 years after that. There are some important life choices immediately ahead. Don't take them on a whim.

    The best of luck for today!

    Well results are in around 5 hours to AS Levels and I think I may need a new life plan. I was hoping for AAAA, I'm predicted AAAB, and I really want to go to Oxford, but I'm freaking out that I may have AABB. If this is the case then my dream is over and I need a new life plan.

    I love debating,
    Politics,
    Philosophy,
    Economics,
    Adventurous escapades,
    More debating,
    Public speaking

    What job should I pursue? Need a new passion and focus if tomorrow goes wrong and I don't get three As.

    Please help?

    Wait- until you know.
    You should at least have had one or two backup plans, insurance offer.
    See what happens.

    Firstly breath, if you don't get the grades its not the end of the world. I didn't and I resat and got into the degree I wanted.

    You don't have to make the decision today tomorrow or a week away, I wouldn't rush into something like this. If you rush you're going to end up doing something you don't enjoy so take your time, if you have to take a year out in the end whilst you're deciding its not the end of the world. Having taken a gap year I would advise it for everyone its a life changing experience.

    What is your current "life plan"?

    AAA at AS, A*AA at A2, Oxford History and Politics, Law Conversion, Corporate Law, Politics at around 35.

    That plan is based on what happens when I click though, so I'm terrified.

    My advise to anyone is yes have aspirations and have goals but don't limit them to ages, I definitely fell victim to that and was so disappointed when things didn't go my way. I know its hard but really don't limit yourself to a certain age things will happen when they happen.

    Keep your options open uni wise as well as oxford is very hard to get into so have a look after other unis and see if any take your fancy and if not gap years are wonderful things and you could always take one.
